    When can we expect the challenge course to be released?

  • #2
    We are planning to release more details for the 2022 International SeaPerch Challenge on October 8th. This release will include general competition information, pool course details, rules, scoring, and other event details. We admit that we’ve missed our planned “late summer” release by a few weeks so thanks for being patient with our team. We’re excited at the amount of information we will be able to share this early in the season and for the chance to see many of you in person at the competition next year.

    Thanks for waiting until the 1st day of Fall to ask!

        Hello, for the 2022 sea perch challenge, I had a quick question. The competition class rules state that we cannot use 3-d printed under the high school category on the frame, but we can create attachments that are 3-d printed. Would connections count as an attachment or a frame part such as a 90-degree elbow joint, etc. Thank you

          For Stock Classes - Any part of the frame including parts that connect the frame together must be standard piping or standard fittings.
          A 3D printed part would be allowed if it only connects the attachment to the frame but does not connect frame components together.

            The red pipe on the challenge course that is connected to the battery compartment door. In the build guide it looks like just pvc 4 inch with the yellow poly rope. Is there supposed to be the foam inside to help it float up and locked?

              The pipes are 4”. Did you see the build guide?
              https://robonation.org/app/uploads/s...urses_v2.0.pdf
              the poly rope is buoyant and should keep the red pipe up in the latched position.
              The latch does not "lock" in the open or closed position.

                When competing under the high school class, are we allowed to reshape and create parts out of the PVC pipes for the frame of the ROV by using a heat gun, sander, etc? By this, are we allowed to create new parts and shapes without using new materials?

                  Yalester Yes, this is encouraged and we want to see how teams can push the limits using standard materials. All other rules must complied with, i.e. you cannot use CNC machinery to create or modify frame parts for stock class.
                  There are also a variety of fittings such as 45° elbows, 3-way, 4-way, and 5-way PVC fittings.

                    How far apart should the battery compartment be placed from the storage pallet?

                      GMachinski for the International Challenge they will be 4 to 5 feet apart.
                      Are you building for a regional or practice for teams?

                        Hello! If we are competing under the high school class, do the pvc, cpvc, and pe pipe sizes matter? Are we limited to only using 1/2 inch pvc pipes or can we use 1/4 inch pvs pipes? Same with all the other pipes. Thank you!

                          Yalester there is no restriction on size.

                            Are zip ties, fishing line and tape allowed to hold the frame together instead of elbows?

                              Shanklincj Yes, anything that is a standard part or material. Materials can also be modified through non-automated processes, such as cutting pipes and fittings, and bending pipe.
